Breaking the Silence about Sexual Abuse of Deaf Youth.
Mertens, Donna M.
American Annals of the Deaf, v141 n5 p352-58 Dec 1996
This study investigated the theories people hold concerning sexual abuse of deaf children, through document review, observation, interviews, and a staff survey at a residential school for the deaf. Theories that blame the victim or the culture are contrasted with those that recognize the power inequities inherent in sexual abuse. (Author/DB)
